And really. What is laying on of hands? As a Christian, I've never heard of that one, and it would have made me feel weird too, but I would have gone along with it.

You should have gone to the pulpit and said "I'd like to read a passage from the good book..."
& then proceeded to whip out The God Delusion...
Just in case, I will ask science to formulate some forgiveness.
I really just hope I die with no body to recover, no one to attend anything, and no event to take place. I so don't want to be amongst these people that consider themselves close to me, when in reality, they've never really been.
So, I'm curious what do others think about an atheist in the midst of Christians, playing along?
I'm also not shy about my atheism when it comes to people who I think will give a damn (as opposed to a damning).

Probably one of the few times that I'll completely agree with borntowatch. You were respecting the customs, helping to celebrate your cousin's joyous occasion, and giving support to a family member. There's absolutely nothing wrong with what you did. Kudos!
